Financial Assistance

Girl Scouts of Western Washington welcomes every girl and volunteer, regardless of their income. We make funds available to cover membership, events and workshops, troop dues, supplies, and camp.

Instructions

1. Review your eligibility.

If your family qualifies for free or reduced-price school lunch or if your Girl Scout is a foster child, you qualify for our Financial Assistance Program.

2. Apply for financial assistance through our digital or paper application forms.  Third-party advocates may apply for Financial Assistance on behalf of a Girl Scout with their family’s verbal permission.  

3. Wait for your application to be reviewed. This can take up to 14 business days.

4. Complete your Girl Scout membership via our Join form. Upon checkout, indicate that Financial Assistance is your payment method.

5. Apply for additional grants. Once you are approved, you may request up to three troop dues, event, and/or supply grants. You may also request one camp grant up to $250. 

To request additional grants:

  • For Troop Dues, Council Events, and Supply Grants, use our digital or paper Financial Assistance application to submit your request. You may do this at the same time as applying for your Financial Assistance eligibility or later.

  • For Partner Event Grants, use our digital or paper Financial Assistance application. After paying for the event submit your receipt to  FinancialAssistance@GirlScoutsWW.org or by mail at PO Box 770 DuPont, WA 98327.

  • For Service Unit Events, work with your Service Unit and they will submit a grant request on your behalf.

  • For all summer camps, register for your camp of choice and indicate Financial Assistance as your payment method.

We accept Membership Dues Grant requests all year long. We accept all other grant requests (Supply Voucher Grants, Troop Dues Grants, etc.), from October 1, 2019 through August 30, 2020.
